Barre Workouts

Barre 60, Express Barre and Barre & Stretch

 

Using the ballet barre as a basis for a complete body workout, the exercises involve dynamic and static movements, isometric holds, core strengthening and luxurious orthopaedic stretching. A fun, fast-paced and deceptively challenging work-out improves cardiovascular stamina and tones and sculpts each muscle group. All the exercises are performed to music. We offer a full, 60-minute Workout, a 45-minute Express class, slightly shortened (but with no compromise on level of intensity!) for when you have a little less time available for your WorkOut 

Are these classes for me?

You do not need any previous dance or general exercise experience and all classes are entirely suitable for beginners. Classes are suitable for anyone over the age of 16. Fitness and shape are not important.

 

With regular workouts, you will develop muscle mass, improve bone density and flexibility and achieve the posture and balanced mobility of a dancer’s body.

With no jumping around and no wildly beating heart – and no need to shower after the class – this is highly efficient exercise that can be done anywhere, anytime.

Barre Technique

Barre Technique is all about breaking down positions and specific alignment and helping you understand it, approach it from different angles (if you find some aspects of barre challenging) and focusing on getting your foundations really solid before you begin to build serious strength, increase your range or tackle more complex sequences. Use it to support you as you begin your barre journey, or use it as a regular ‘check-in’ to keep your form ‘en pointe’!

 

We’ve also added some additional, shorter workouts here that have a specific focus on the upper or lower body, dynamic and even seated workouts, tutorials on alignment and longer stretches. Use these as support for your overall wellness and to plug any gaps you may have in specific areas. Enjoy!
